The quest to throw a Cucco into Death Mountain in Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Dorkly embarked upon a quest to throw a Cucco into Death Mountain (read: volcano) in Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and the relatively short video is worth checking out if you've ever done something similar. The fact that stuff like this is eve...   read

This near minute long wipeout in Zelda: Breath of the Wild is worth your time

Shield surfing isn't something I even knew I could do in Zelda: Breath of the Wild until roughly 50 hours in. I mean I had stayed away from pretty much all of the pre-launch footage and the innocuous "you can shield surf" loading screen too...   read

This fight between a Guardian and a Stone Talus is one of the best Zelda: Breath of the Wild videos yet

One of the reasons I love Breath of the Wild so much is because of how open it truly is. No I don't mean in a cookie cutter "open world" kind of way, but a truly freeing experience where you can get lost in exploration for hours on end...   read

Maybe don't watch this spoilery Zelda: Breath of the Wild video

There's a lot going on this Japanese television ad for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Too much, probably! You're not going to want to see it if you've held out this long and remained relatively spoiler-free. Stay strong, and also...   read

Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment manages to differentiate itself quite a bit, here's some gameplay

Yacht Club Games is gearing up for their second free expansion for the original Shovel Knight -- a game that I felt was wholly complete on its own, but is somehow the gift that keeps on giving. Plague Knight was really good, ...   read

LEGO Dimensions' Sonic pack is better than some recent Sonic games

WB was pretty smart with their marketing for LEGO Dimensions. Rather than suffer the same fate as Disney Infinity, a series that had gone through three iterations into its 3.0 form before being canceled, they made the very non-WB decis...   read

Intrepid YouTuber finds hidden swear word in Mario Kart 8

I know a lot of you would kill to have the time to do what YouTube user Harm has done here, but it's still an interesting discovery nonetheless. Working on a hunch, Harm decided that since the Mii chatter for the Mario Kart 8 TV menu sounde...   read

The leaks were wrong: Pokken Tournament welcomes...Croagunk?!

Given that a reliable leak gave us Scizor and Darkrai, it stood to reason that Empoleon, the third leak, would be announced for Pokken Tournament. But we were possibly trolled by Bandai Namco, as the newest character on the block is none ot...   read

Having played games since the '80s, I've seen my fair share of Easter eggs and secret boss strategies. Whether it's an instant kill method or just a silly way to approach the fight, I used to love going to school and discussing these lesser...   read

You're a Lego, Harry (again)

At one point Harry Potter was so popular that it got two LEGO games (in 2010 and 2011) that were released on just about every platform known to man, including the original DS. Now people are just complaining about Harry Potter and the ...   read

Star Fox Zero now has a low key demo on the Wii U eShop

I liked Star Fox Zero more than most, and I'm perfectly okay with that. I know some of you couldn't get used to the control scheme and didn't dig some of the difficulty spikes, but it only took me a few hours to acclimate -- and althou...   read
